Deepak Chopra

Did you know?

Every single thing you’ve heard, read, watched, experienced, expressed, said, shouted, wrote;
Every single opinion you’ve had, agreed on, discussed, believed;
Every single person you know or have known;
Have all served to bring you to this moment.

Now, if this moment isn’t meeting most of your needs then there is work to be done.
A controlled mental diet is what the Universe has ordered.
That doesn’t mean you have to cut everyone out, ofcourse not.
But you have to consider how much news you’ll see, how much gossip you’ll encounter, how long you’ll spend around people that make you feel worse after, the books you read (or, will start to read), the music you hear and where you’ll spend your time.
Every second of 24 hours is creation. If you don’t make any changes then you will continue to create what you have now.
The question is, what are you going to create with it?

Phil McGraw is a TV therapist who tells people what to do to fix their terrible lives, and they love him for it. That sure sounds like a recipe for becoming a power-hungry madman.

We’re not saying he is. But man, that recipe

As an example of his possible power-hungry madness, consider the former employee of the Dr. Phil show who recently filed a lawsuit claiming the host kept 300 employees captive in a locked, guarded room. This was apparently done so he could try to figure out who leaked some information to the media – in addition to the kidnapping, the good doctor allegedly took everyone’s phones and warned them “If you fuck with me, I’ll fuck with you.”

McGraw and his producers deny that version of events, and have claimed it was a simple work meeting. For now, at least, a judge has refused to dismiss the charges.

This isn’t the first run in Dr. Phil has had with this bizarrely specific charge, though.

When we find ourselves looking at the world and saying, ‘There’s nothing out there for me,’ we should probably also look into our hearts and ask, 'If there’s nothing out there, is there anything in here?’ We need to examine our inner dialogue to discover where we might be blocking the conscious energy flow, then remove the ego, step out of the way, and let the fire of the soul shine through us.

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.

Life’s uncertainty makes constant demands on everyone’s coping mechanisms. There are basically two ways to cope with uncertainty – acceptance and resistance. Acceptance means that you allow events to unfold around you and react to them spontaneously, without suppression. Resistance means that you try to change events from what they really are…
Acceptance is healthy because it permits you to clear any stress as soon as it occurs; resistance is unhealthy because it builds up residues of frustration, false expectations, and unfulfilled desires.
